On the anniversary of his death. You can’t make this stuff up.
From the Guardian. Short version: Google needs patents and may just sell off the hardware business; but maybe not. Maybe Google wants to try to be Apple, doing integrated hardware and software. GooMoto could make some cool devices. Might not be as nice as Apple (which is still the best, by far) but some people might sacrifice ease-of-use if they can get greater control over their device. (Gillmor is one of them.) Downside: It’s bad news for HTC, Samsung […]
This guy just tracked me down on a vacation with my family in England. I guess he took issue with my post suggesting that Google pulled a fast one on Apple and Microsoft. I don’t know what came over me. Of course no company could outsmart Apple. Especially not Google. Google people are stupid and evil. Their products are all crap, and worse yet, they are based on stolen IP. No one buys Android phones. No one wants them. They all […]
Google's original bid for Motorola was the Euler-Mascheroni constant divided by the distance in meters between Mountain View and Schaumburg, but Sanjay Jha told them to stop fucking around and make it a real number or he'd sell to Microsoft
Counting down the seconds before someone does the math and posts a comment saying this actually makes no sense.
Allegation is that Apple created images where they changed the dimensions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab to make it look more like the iPad — to convince a German court that Samsung’s product is a clone and a ripoff. Hard to believe that Apple would do this. The GT may violate all sorts of Apple patents — who knows? — but in terms of physical size you would not mistake […]
Everyone was baffled when Google made those crazy bids for the Nortel patents last month. Remember? They bid things like the distance from the earth to the sun, the number pi, and some other wacky numbers from mathematics. Which led ultra Apple fanboy MG Siegler to crow that Google had got “pi in the face” and was “living in a dream world” and “look like huge asses […]
MG Siegler of TechCrunch says everyone hates Google because Google is trying to do too much. Meaning: Apple was fine with Google until Google decided to invade Apple’s turf by making a smartphone operating system, and then started having some success. Keep in mind that MG is an Apple fanboy who recently compared Apple to James Bond and compared Google to Le Chiffre, the villain in Casino Royale. This was when Microsoft was so desperate to screw Google […]
Much love and thanks for all the advice on my post about the saga of my crashing MacBook Pro. I got a lot of good tips, especially from people on Facebook. Maybe it’s the fans. Maybe it’s some wire. Maybe it’s a thermal issue. The MBP is still out at the Burlington Mall store, and higher powers at Apple have become involved, and […]
This because yesterday I posted an item wondering if the market collapse means the IPO window has shut down again, and if so, what happens to the VCs who are sitting on a bunch of deals where they’ve paid ridiculously high valuations? They were hoping to flog this stuff off to bigger fools in the public markets, which is why they were going around repeateing […]
